>>> good morning. i'm chris jansing. today the nation unites to remember a president taken from us too soon. the 50-year anniversary of the assassination of president john f. kennedy, today not just renewing the debate over how and why he was killed but also reminding us with his youthful optimism and soaring rhetoric why his accepsenseless killing us shattered. flags across the country are at half staff. president obama gave the word to honor in his words an extraordinary public servant. members of the kennedy family left flowers at the arlington national cemetery this morning. this afternoon 5,000 people will gather to pause for a moment of silence, a moment that marked every american alive. it changed the nation and some believe took its innocence. we'll talk to a nurse who was inside the e.r. when the president was brought in and ask questions of our panel, including where were you, how did it change us. that's coming up. >>> but we want to begin with the big news out of washington today. democrats in the senate doing something unprecedented, changing the filibuster rules so on
. tell us what happened, why this is so important to you. >> well, it's so important to me because i think being able to take some of these cases out of the direct chain of command reduces any additional confusion and impartiality that's there. all we're really asking for are impartial, unbiased, trained legal professionals to be handling these cases as best as they can. >> in fact one of the ways you've put it, sarah, is you've said the military judicial system falls flat on its face in handles assault cases. i saw once you likened it to getting raped by your brother and having your father decide the case. tell us what you think it would mean to have an independent military prosecutor. would it have helped in your case? >> well, i think having an independent military prosecutor would, as i said, reduce some of that bias that's just naturally there. i think it's almost unfair for commanders to be placed in the position that they are now, to be asked to be the final word on a lot of these cases, to be deciding what goes to trial or not. to be deciding what the final say-so is. in a wa
stepped out of that oversight and government reform committee hearing to talk to us. good morning. >> good morning. >> i'm sure you've been listening to the conversation. is it your sense that democratic unity on obama care is weakening? >> not really and not yet. and that's because we know, for example, that in the first couple of months in massachusetts, and that's really the only precedent we had, there were only a couple of thousand people who signed up. we also know about the very troubled rollout of the prescription drug site. we do know that fixes could be made. one thing we also know is that if you put a bill on the floor, and that's what i challenge speaker boehner to do, put a bill on the floor to fix it and see if that doesn't devolve into another appeal. remember where they began. first they undermined it. then they tried to repeal it. now they're trying to sabotage it. one of the problems we're having now is that they're having to take money from other parts of hhs because the appropriators have not in fact funded what needed to be done with this site. one of the changes i thi
, basically she said he knows how to play this game. >> i understand his call to 911, he's using 911 as a pr service. he knew both calls would get on the news so he called in to say here is my side of the story world. it's this weird dynamic that surrounds him. >> because he knows there's no independent eyewitness, he knows there's no videotape. >> does this become he said/she said? >> that's what he's looking for. >> that's what he wants to do. that's why he called 911 to put his story out there. then it becomes he said/she said. >> same thing with the trayvon martin case. he knew -- trayvon martin was dead. he was the only one able to get out his story about what happened. if he could in a calm demeanor, just like he called 911, he repeatedly told his story to the police, repeatedly got his story out there. what this incident tells me is that image that mark o'mara and the defense tried to portray of george zimmerman as this upstanding citizen who just had to use his gun, he had no other choice. it was his life or trayvon's,his actions fly in the face of that. this is the real person becau
was that they felt the president should use an executive order to stop deportations which he said he couldn't do. although given the prospects for immigration, josh, it does seem like or any legislation for that matter, that's the president's real opportunity almost anywhere is just an executive order, because congress isn't getting anything done. >> i think we're seeing that all over his agenda, trying to find ways to work around congress. we're seeing it on climate change, where the epa is looking at do some very aggressive things to limit carbon emissions because congress won't act on that. so i think the president looks for those opportunities wherever he can. but his powers are legally limited. he's already giving forebearance on certain deportations. while he will look for those avenues, he can't do everything that his base wants without congress approval. >> he's also getting impatient. the senate passed an immigration bill in june and so now the president says he's even open to doing this the house's way, piecemeal. let's take a listen to that. >> i understand there are a number of other
situations for the moment. so when's the best time to leave if your traveling? bill karins joins us now with the forecast. what's the timing like? i know you have a big blob on the northeast part of the country. >> the airports are doing a lot better than the roads. the problem is we got so much rain in a short period of time, we have a lot of huge, big puddles and some lanes closed on some highways. we've got 3 inches of rain in the last 12 hours up there in connecticut and massachusetts. we had about 2 inches of rain anywhere from philadelphia all the way down to d.c., including new york city. so the heavy rains have shifted northward but we still have to wait for some of that to drain out of the way. the longer you can wait, the better the roads will get during the day today. the green on the map shows you all the rain. the heaviest is now anywhere from the connecticut/new york border shifting up into maine. notice the rain is completely shut off in washington, d.c. temperatures will be falling too, but not below freezing. i'm not too worried about ice. and the snow side of the storm
were absolutely obliterated. >> reporter: well, chris, this used to be a subdivision. there are stores around here that are completely gone. there are homes here completely gone. some 300 homes in this area alone. 500 damaged as these fast-moving storms just cut a swath right through illinois and then just kept on going. as you saw yesterday, the bears game in chicago had to be postponed for a while. when we came you down here yesterday after it had happened, there were semis flipped like kids' toys on the highway on the big sfwarts over here. commonwealth edison was all over the place. there were wires down and everything. fortunately, things seemed to work well here, as well as they could. the sirens did go off here. people did get the warning. unfortunately, one person lost their life. as many as six have loss of their lives. the mayor tells us there are no people missing. everyone has been accounted for. authorities have gone house to house, checking, puts red xs as we've seen so many times. those things are taking place. how powerful were these storms? well, the two best anecdotes
of the rga when he ran the first time. there is a line chris christie has to walk. he can't use it for more personal than for party gain. >> i don't know about that. i think he's going to use the role to maximize everything in his life. you know, chris christie is in an incredibly good position right now. the governors are coming together and staying on message and saying you don't want someone from washington right now. you want a chief executive. they're trying a take away the attention from washington to themselves. i think they have a good point. i don't think you can elect someone from washington in 2016. >> paul ryan disagrees. your paper has a list of members of congress, youthful lawmakers considering 2016 bids. paul ryan is 43 and ted cruz, and marco rubio, 42. the others are in their fourth term in the senate just like president obama when he decided to run, but is it a lot tougher now, karen, to run for that position? >> i think so. it's a lot tougher in part because again, the republican party is standing with the american people. and the other thing to remember is that governor
think it bodes a very, very ominously for the region and in fact u.s. security. >> we're sending a signal to iran that they can continue to go ahead and by talking and acting like they have good will can get away with at least nuclear weapon production. >> and if you say the reaction in iran, they're spiking the football in the end zone. >> we are very concerned as to whether iran will live up to even these commitments, and this is a first step. >> president obama meantime trying to calm everyone down. he called israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu yesterday after netanyahu expressed public outrage over this deal. >> what was concluded in geneva last night is not a historic agreement. it's a historic mistake. >> i want to bring in our company, managing editor dafna linzer and reuters foreign affairs columnist david rhode. good to see both of you. good morning. >> good morning. >> here's the basic outline of the deal. iran stops enriching uranium above 5%. they stop work on a plow tone yum reactor and provide daily access for nuclear inspectors and they get economic
force one on his way to new orleans where he'll talk about boosting u.s. exports. of course the economy was the number one issue on the minds of voters in new jersey and virginia, as they went to the polls this tuesday. reaction now to today's jobs report from the white house. jason furman is chairman of the council of economic advisers. good morning. good to see you. >> good morning, chris. >> you're smiling. i guess you're happy with these numbers. is it about what you expected? >> you know, you're always happy when the economy is creating jobs. october was more confusing. as you said, you saw job creation but saw the unemployment rate ticking up. i think the thing that was clearest and most exciting to us in these data were that august and september were revised up. it now looks like we were creating about 200,000 jobs a month. so going into the shutdown, the economy was in a stronger place than people thought previously. >> as you well know, the white house put out a report ahead of today's jobs report and it found that the shutdown led to more than six million days of lost work, co
. ian williams is in manila for us today. how are the rescue and relief efforts going? >> reporter: well, they're getting under way and of course the u.s. are making their effort as well, getting marines in there typhoon's normally go. this is down in the center. that's unusual. last year there was one even farther south which is unusual which is also category 5. so this trend towards having these strong winds to the south, is that a symbol or signal of something changing in the climate or is just mother nature, we don't know at this point. >> obviously when you look over the last 10, 20 years there has been an increase in extreme weather. massive flooding in colorado, hurricane sandy last year, the hurricane in haiti, of course hurricane katrina in 2005. what is the latest thinking in the science community on the global change connection? >> well, you have a couple of different things there. in terms of these tropical systems, hurricanes and typhoons. they're exactly the same system, just different names in different parts of the world. the consensus is a warmer climate does not dramati
early, we get this. joy ann, do these numbers tell us anything? >> i think they do. hillary clinton has a lot of core strength. obviously women are very hungry to have their opportunity to get the white house after what happened in 2008 as sort of the near miss hillary had, nearly shattering the glass ceiling. she also has a few other things going for her. the clintons are very good at wooing working class, white voters and she has that strength in the midwest, the west, roots in pennsylvania as well as in illinois. she has an infrastructure left over partly from her run but also from the obama campaign. there are a lot of obama people beginning to creep toward the hillary effort and you saw that she dominates with african-americans. i think that sort of explodes a little bit this myth that because shaquille o'neal did one commercial for chris christie he can magically win black voters. >> every single time we have a presidential race, the look of the electorate is changing and it's going to continue to change. one of the things they're doing at this meeting, ready for hillary, is looki
the white house need to come up with something or many of us will support the upton bill. so with that in mind, how it all played out just over the last half hour or so, let me bring in our company josh burrell, politics editor for the business insider and daphne is managing editor of feels, josh, like the president had to do something. >> i think he had to. i'll be interested to see exactly when he's proposing. >> what are the options? >> one thing ezekiel manuel was alluding to yesterday and he's one of the key architects with the law. you're allowed to keep a plan if you were in it as of february 2010, and part of the reason that a lot of people are finding they can't keep their plans is if the plan raised its deductible or co payment and changed the key terms and it's said to be a new plan and not grandfathered. but you would still have a lot of plans getting canceled. something more sweeping than that i wonder as they talk about an administrative fix, but this was an important stub standive part of the law and so i -- the people want some sort of magic bullet
>>> good morning, i'm chris jansing. this morning u.s. aid is starting to arrive in the devastated philippines. right now the military can confirm 942 deaths, but by some estimates as many as 10,000 could be dead in just one philippine city alone. most are victims of the typhoon storm surge that rose 13 feet high. the help can't come fast enough. survivors now three days into this are on an increasingly desperate search for food and water. looting is a problem. and the faces of the children especially heart breaking. unicef estimates 1.7 million children were living in the bath of the storm. complicating efforts, no electricity, telecommunications are down, and limited access to hard-hit areas. this is the mayor of the city that bore the brunt of the storm. >> our problem is, is getting more relief goods in because the roads are not yet accessible, okay. i myself already have even the day after the storm we were retrieving bodies at the same time clearing roads. >> now, there is a political component to this as well. the ongoing tragedy reigniting the climate change debate. the huf
there are going to be other messages or useful instructions coming out of virginia. i know you have campaigned with terry mcauliffe. he has taken a page off the obama playbook. he's got tremendous appeal with women. i think he's up more than 20 points. he's been appealing to latinos. what are you going to be looking for when the results come in? >> thank you for asking that, chris. for one thing terry mcauliffe has not run away from the gun issue. normally that's an issue that's very sensitive in virginia. but he said he's entirely for the assault weapons ban reinstating -- closing the gun show loophole, et cetera. he's also campaigned for cleaner air and water, supporting environmental regulations, even in southwest virginia where people think there's a war on coal going on. he's taken on that issue and embraced it. he obviously is in favor of things like enda and equal rights for everyone. he certainly is strongly on the side of women being able to protect their reproductive rights. there's an enormous contrast between these two tickets. terry mcauliffe is elected, i think it sends a signal
tells us this thing is going to work. we have actually had about 8,000 people enroll, which is about ten times as many as we were expecting in the first month. and we've seen that in other states as well. so, you know, ultimately whether people are confident or not in the website, once they're able to actually get on and buy this product, which frankly they can do through a phone call right now, i think you'll see a lot of people sign up. i'm confident this thing is going to work in the end. the problems with the website notwithstanding. >> and as you have said, and everything i've read indicates things have been going well in connecticut. but here's maybe the problem. the majority of the enrollees are in the age 55 to 64 age range. the biggest -- after that the biggest age range is 45 to 54. and we know that for health care to be successful, young people have to sign up. are you worried about that? >> what we also know about yuoug people is that they wait until the last minute to do a lot of things. as the youngest member of the senate, i can certainly speak for that generation. when yo
. a brand new book and the 2013 campaign trail. it's giving us a sharper look at how the 2016 race could shape up. it's clear that hillary clinton and chris christie are the prohibitive favorites. the new jersey governor hoping to use a big victory tomorrow to show republicans he is the most electable. mitt romney hinted christie could be the party's savior in 2016. hillary clinton is calculating her own appearances with her first foray back into the campaign spotlight, stumping for close friend terry mcauliffe. but that new book, "double down" is spilling big-time campaign secrets from the 2012 election. two bombshells include dirt on chris christie's background that came up during the vice presidential vet and tpossibiliy they would swap joe biden for hillary clinton. two veteran campaign reporters say president obama saying i just don't know if i can do this, as he prepared for the second debate. let me bring in our company, editor in chief of reason magazine, matt welch and the "washington post" politics reporter, jackie kucinich. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with ch
to limit the influence he can have on the city. just yesterday he used graphic language, shall we say, in a live television interview when he was talking about allegations a woman made against him early e.r. there was the release of that video where he was on a drunken rant threatening to kill someone so we'll keep our eye on this. right now they're just in procedural issues. we'll see if anything happens with the mayorality of rob ford in toronto. >>> good morning, i'm chris jansing. also the fallout of president obama's health care fix. politically he may have tamped down some of the pressure in his own party by letting americans who have had their plans cancelled keep them. >> what the president did today i think was politically right but in the long run we've got to get away from these junk, inadequate insurance programs. >> republicans still determined to take full advantage of the health care problems will start voting this morning on their own fix. it's called the upton bill. this proposal goes further than letting people simply keep their health insurance plans, it allows ever
